To disrupt the Real Estate Market and become the largest online Web 3.0 property platform providing developers, agents, and landlords access to an exciting new marketplace.
TokenHouse Is the first London-based company to provide landlords and developers with the ability to wholly convert real estate into digital assets in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
As a company, we believe in embracing and championing new technology. However, the origin of our name is rooted in the past. TokenHouse gets its name from the historical building, Tokenhouse Yard, where our company is located.
Tokenhouse Yard was established in 1636 during the reign of Charles I and was used as the main office for the issuance of tradeable tokens. The tokens were crucial for facilitating trade among merchants in times of acute shortages of silver and gold coins. Tokens were, in effect, a pledge redeemable in goods but not necessarily a currency – (much like modern NFTs.)
It took courage and vision to find an innovative solution to a systemic problem that threatened the economy of the time. In that same spirit, we at TokenHouse have taken bold steps in pioneering the transition of physical property into NFTs, to allow property owners to leverage their assets in the world of Web 3.0 and Decentralised Finance (DeFi).
Innovation requires bold, innovative people, and disrupting an industry as complex as real estate, requires vast and varied industry expertise.
The TokenHouse team is comprised of industry experts in Real Estate, DeFi and Blockchain technology, and our advisory team lends their specialised expertise to the areas of Property Development, Property Law, and Trustee Services to ensure that our clients are confident that their interests and assets are protected at every stage.
